What's new around here.

The woman that sold us Lily, our labradoodle a year ago, called and asked us if we would consider taking in an eight month old labradoodle. She's brown, where our Lily is chalk colored. Her name is Abby and she weighs 16 pounds and she is more or less full grown. So she is much smaller than our Lily, who weighs 34. She's high strung, like our Lily is, but we were thinking that might work out. They could wear each other out every day and that might help in the long run. So as of April 1st, we're going to have our new addition, Abby join the family. Anyhow, Linda had saved Abby to breed, but she's just too nervous for that. Our Lily is a nervous nelly also but it doesn't bother any of us. She's a good dog and super good with Samantha, who dresses her up every single night. LOL See the icon. It looks like we're going to have two dogs in the family and we've never done that before. I see people post about their animals and they have more than one and they seem to do just fine. So, please keep us in your thoughts on April 1st when we try and make this transition as easy for as possible for Abby. We choose the name Abby, her real name is Laverne and I wouldn't do that to the pup. LOL I think Abby is cute. I've always liked that name. OKay, I'm done with my newsflash. LOL Have a good week, y'all.

Hugs, Patt

Linda is doing that this weekend. She wants to have it all done before we take her home. THen we'll go three times at least to see how the pups do together. She's so cute.

I'm glad she's doing it before you get her. You'll be amazed at how much better and calmer she'll be after that.

Good luck.

Grey, are you pups nervous around people when they come to the house? Just wondering if anyone elses dogs did this. Lily warms up pretty quickly, but at first she is a nervous Nelly.

Oh, yes, they go crazy when someone first comes in, barking and acting nutty. They do settle down when they know the person, takes a few minutes, but that first knock sets off pack sounds. It's especially bad with Suki because she's like a wild thing and has a very loud, high pitched bark.

I do like having her bark at noises and anyone near the house, though. I like a warning when anyone is around. She's a good little alarm system. LOL Glad to hear mine is not the only one who doesn't dig people all the time.
